In the dark room

Photos: Leigh 2009

Not really, but while I am editing and organizing the edits from the show here are a few of many shots I took of the Golden Gate Bridge. I loved seeing it in person, I have a little family history in San Francisco as my Great Great Uncle Andrew Cowper Lawson was the first person to identify and name the San Andreas Fault in 1895 and also to find the position to give the Golden Gate Bridge its permanent location.

BTW they called the weather a heat wave at a high of 79, as you can see I was not particularly warm but rather wind blown and a bit cold while the sun was setting. I was laughing so much because as I was dressed like that, people were jogging all around me in the gusts of cold with their shirts off, shorts. (it was around 60 at that time) I guess I am quite used to dry heat here in Denver ;)

I also will have some new illustrations and a painting that I have been working on coming soon.

Beautiful photos of my favorite spots in SF!

And yes, we do consider it a heat wave here when the temperature is over 60! :)

I love the Golden Gate Bridge and you captured it perfectly. I just went there a few weeks ago and fell in love!

Beautiful. There will ALWAYS be a special place in my heart for SF. I met my wife there. I'm glad you were able to experience and capture a piece of the magic...and thanks for your comment on my blog.

Those photos are beautiful. They remind me of my days as a photographer, I used to love to go to Canada and shoot the Detroit skyline. My favorite of course was the ambassador bridge.

Your work is so strong a pleasing to the eye. I enjoy visiting your blog very much and can't wait to see the new stuff.

Congrats on that little bit of important family history. It's a wonderful discovery.

Kisses and Kudos my dear!

lol...I remember I was freezing when I was in SF too...especially at night. And it was so funny to me that you would cross that bridge and it was 20 degrees warmer!
love the photos and the story about your family! how cool:)
